  • Cycling route 186470
From Zeist you can easily enter the Kromme Rijnstreek, a low-lying region at the foot of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug. Here you cycle past grasslands and orchards. There are many old country estates in the Langbroek area, such as Sterkenburg Castle. Some country houses initially consisted only of a fortified residential tower and were only later embellished. From a distance you can already see the church tower of Cothen. The surroundings of the ancient Rhijnestein Castle are considered a protected village scene. You also pass Oog in't Zeil, a flour mill from 1869. Via Werkhoven and Bunnik you drive to Slot Zeist. This pleasure place was built in the seventeenth century by order of Willem Adriaan van Nassau, a grandson of Maurits van Oranje. At Hotel FiGi you can enjoy a coffee on the terrace.
